Greek Food - Recipe: Octapothi

Grilled octopus and some ouzo, as Greek as it gets.

5 Clove Garlic (Finely chopped)
4 Whole Lemons (Squeezed)
1 Whole Octopus
3/4 Cup Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Oregano
1-2 Pinch Pepper (To taste)
2-3 Pinch Salt (To taste)
1 Cup Vinegar
  • Beat the octopus with a hammer or against the concrete to soften it up. This may take 15 minutes or more.
  • Cut and clean the octopus into pieces about twice the size of a serving because the meat will shrink when cooked.
  • It might be an idea to marinate the octopus over night in the vinegar, a 1/4 cup of olive oil, the garlic, some oregano, salt and pepper.
  • To cook, warm the BBQ to low-medium heat and lay on the meat.
  • Baste with a mixture of the remaining olive oil, the juice from the lemons, and the oregano, being careful not to cause a flame to erupt in the BBQ.
  • When cooked, pour the remaining basting mix over the removed octopus and serve.
